After few squall during the nights the weather has settle with a North wind of 13-15 kts.
We are sailing on a broad reach with full main and jib doing (thanks to the Eddy currents) about 8.5 kts.
This morning is a text book "blue water" sailing day: blue sky with some clouds, sailing on a comfortable reach
doing near hull speed on a deep blue water.
Fish lure is in the water and we already had a bite but unfortunately the fish got away.
Threading the correct side of the Eddy to take advantage of north-to-south current
Blue water sailing
Happy crew with less layers (outside temperature is now 22 C)
